Middle East crisis: Gaza house destroyed after Israeli warnings

Israel has urged thousands of Palestinians in eastern and northern Gaza to leave their homes as it continues air strikes.

Israel launched its operation on 8 July, stating its objective as halting Palestinian rocket attacks. However, the United Nations says the majority of those killed in Gaza have been civilians.

Footage posted online apparently shows the moment one house in Gaza was destroyed after warnings from the Israeli military on Saturday. Everyone escaped unharmed.

The BBC's Jeremy Bowen later met the homeowner - Samid Nofal - who denied the house was targeted because his sons are Hamas militants.
